Slovenia - Bled Castle (Blejski Grad) Impressive Views on the lake.

Do visit when you're in Bled. The castles' impressive location, towering above the lake gives you a unique view on the lake and the island. Ultimate photo opportunity. The castle houses a small museum and is very well restored.

According to written sources it's the oldest castle in Slovenia, first mentioned in a 1011 donation deed as castellum Veldes. Perched atop a steep cliff rising 130 metres above the glacial Lake Bled is a symbol of Bled and Slovenia – Bled Castle. The image of the castle forming a dramatic backdrop to the romantic island and the church on it has earned the resort worldwide recognition through the centuries. Castle terraces offer spectacular views of the lake and the island, down the Dežela area with Lesce and Radovljica and over to the mountain ranges of the Karavanke and the Julian Alps.
